Tracey said to Nina: "Your shop looks really lovely and really inviting from the outside, I think it will do really well."

Husband Jason was in agreement, he said: "It's certainly the sort of shop we would come to.

"I think like a lot of people we've gone from shopping in bigger shops to shopping locally."
